The Best textbook for International HRM May 2, 2007

International HRM by Dowling and Welch

When I was being assigned from my University to teach International HRM, I browsed in some online bookstores to find textbooks. But surprisingly, there are not enough of textbooks in this field of study. However, I first tried with some multidisciplinary HR textbooks but those did not help me. Eventually, I found a textbook by Dowling and Welch “International Human Resource Management: Managing people in a multinational context” which I thought to be a general HR textbook with some international contexts and cases. But after reading the book I soon realised the quality of work in that book. The book chapters covered interesting topics like repatriation, cultural adjustments, pre-departure training, etc which are all related with expatriates, TCNs and HCNs. I will definitely recommend this book to all HR practitioners and academics. The book can be bought from Thomson Learning or you also have quick look at their companion website. You can also try International Human Resource Management by Dennis Briscoe and Randall S. Schuler. But I would highly recommend Dowling and Welch’s textbook. If you want to try before you buy, you can download a sample chapter of the book for free.

You can buy the International HRM book by Dowling and Welch. The other textbook that you can use is by “Schuler and Jackson”. If you need the links of amazon, Ill be glad to provide those to you. But Im not sure whether amazon ships to Japan or not.
